Last 69/70 Shelby built
« on: April 20, 2021, 04:25:49 PM »
  I'm sure this has been covered a dozen times but I entered a debate with a guy that I'm trying to resolve. I owned 0F02R483264 at one time and I know this had to be one of the last several cars built. Does anyone know what the last car number is? I don't own a registry.

More then several after 3264 . 0F02R483295 was the last sequential number issued according to the registry.

I thought so. I saw this car at a MCA national show in Alabama some years ago.

Yep a 70 from Gotham ford and back years ago i thought i had found it up in the northeast painted blue over the yellow and the invoice had the color wrong so i thought i had found it as i knew the last shelby was a 70 yellow 4-speed dragpack from gotham ford NY and this car was in long time storage and the owner never got a marti report and # 3124 having a color change nobody had checked it out but we bought it anyway and Randy Sizemore restored it and it was at our 50th annv. 1970 shelby meet last fall at French Lick IN. We had the last  gt350 the last shelby known to exist at our shop back years ago correcting it for the auction sale in montery when John A bought it and then sold again last july at mecum indy. I was always looking for a 70 yellow gt500 dragpack 4 speed (like the last shelby built) and i knew it would be a late 3000 # but i never could remember the last 2 #s and back a few years ago on a  car trip somewhere i thought i had found it another 70 yellow gt500 4 speed dragpack from gotham ford BINGO but it was # 3244 and the last car is #3295. So as RARE as these shelby yellow 70 gt500 4-speed dragpack cars are how did all 3  end up at Gotham ford in NY?  So even thou i never found the last shelby built i had to settle for my 70 yellow gt500 4-speed dragpack convertible the only yellow dragpack vert made and the only 4-speed yellow gt500 vert built out of the 8 total yellow 69-70 gt500 verts built. This is the only car i have that i owned twice last time in 92 (in the middle of devorice settlement) i couldnt afford to keep it so back in 08 the bank bought it back for me !!
